As a small or new business, it can be tricky to find the kind of cash you need to appear both credible and professional. A successful business will, after all, have the revenue they need to invest in a flashy office and fancy furniture for their clients to sink into – but what if you’re not quite there yet? Or maybe you never want a flashy office but you do need to impress your clients somehow?
Luckily, there are ways to make your startup business seem as if it has been a high roller for years already without you having to pay out too much. Here are a couple of ways to make your business appear more credible even if it’s only been around for a short while.
These things just makes it a bit easier to gain the confidence and trust of a new client even if you can’t invite them into your top-floor office space for a meeting!
Work On Your Business Website
Without an actual office, your website is basically the first impression any customer or client will ever get of your business. That is why it needs to be impeccable, stylish, and easy to navigate. You could use a web designer if you have no time or inclination to do this yourself. However today, building a website for your self is very easy if you have the right basic training and tools.
So many small businesses will rely on websites that are outdated and way too difficult to navigate so if you are able to get you website updated and make it relevant you will already have put some of your competitors behind you.
Keep in mind that when you only exist online, you should still try to find a way for your clients to get in touch with you easily. A virtual reception may, for example, give your startup the kind of professional image it needs to win over a few more clients.
Level Up Your Social Media Game
Remember that all of your social media posts are a part of the impression people will get of your business, and you need to focus some extra time on this while your business is still young. That way, you will be able to build a proper group of followers and perhaps even make a few other contacts that are able to help spread your message or product far and wide.
Your social media profiles should be used for answering all of their questions, promoting new products and services, as well as attending to any problems they may have with your business.
When your customers see that you’re actively trying to help and that you’re able to answer even the rudest query with a smile, they will definitely notice how professional you are – and your business will, of course, prosper. That kind of stuff builds credibility for your business and you’ll be able to enjoy a steady stream of traffic to your website.
